Washtenaw Community College (WCC) is committed to student success and wants to ensure the courses you take are right for you. First, we determine your skills through our placement process to understand your academic skill level.
Most WCC courses require students to read and write at the college-level. It is important to register for the correct English and math classes so you can complete your degree on-time.
WCC uses multiple ways, including high school GPA and various placement tests, to place you in the right English and math courses. Learn more about how your test scores are used to place you.
Students are not required to complete a placement test in English or reading if you have attended an accredited college or university and earned at least 15 credits with a GPA of 2.0 or higher.
For students who place below college level, WCC also offers math and English with support courses to allow you to register for college-level courses. You will be provided with additional time and support to successfully complete your courses while saving time and money. Learn more about these options (LINK-info below).
